Nope, It was only announced on the HearSat mailing list and only few
enthusiastics replied. On this world of new space probes with S band
downlinks very few are interested in monitoring old birds which comes back

However the happiness and enjoy I felt after re-discover that old historical
spacecraft is beyond compare.... It is like space archeology.... An U.S. ham
re-discovered LES-1 several months ago and some media wrote a news report,
but the original owner/builder of the satellite didn't reply to his
About Allouette-2, the interesting was the international collaboration, Cuba
and Australia are almost in opposites part of the world, but Mike Kenny and
I still exchange information and collaboreted for confirm the re-discovery,
and that my friend is the true ham spirit....
